Happy Deepavali

Today in Singapore, we are celebrating the Festival of Lights. The above photo is a rangoli. It is a piece of art usually made at the entrance of a home to welcome Hindu deities during festivals.

Under the African Sky Doily WIP4

While joining the trees to my doily, I got a little restless and decided to start a new 'Under the African Sky' doily. This time I was going to use more solid colours but could not help myself but to add the variegated blue for the sky. 

Looking forward to seeing the trees here? Stay tuned!

Glass Jellyfish

No, its just a glass chandelier. Can you see that the whole chandelier is made up of a glass tubing shaped into a hook which when assembled together makes this beautiful light fixture?

Botanical Coaster

This pattern is from my newest pattern book by Tomoko Morimoto titled 'New Tatting'. This is found on page 110 of the book. I rather like this book. Patterns are not difficult and there is this doily I am dying to tat. Perhaps after the African Sky doily by Jane McLelland.

This pattern combines Josephine knots and tiny rings. In the book, a lighter ecru is used for the twin rings while I used a contrasting darker colour. Tatted in Flora Size 20 threads in pink and purple.

Osmanthus Jelly

Flowers suspended in time. 
Light fragrance and a refreshing dessert to complete the meal.
Restaurant a little noisy but
company was familiarly enjoyable.

Pumpkin Soup

Now isn't that a pretty picture. 

It was from a 5 course lunch set at a vegetarian restaurant called SuFood.

Thread Art

These installations were in a showroom. The company is a clothing manufacturer. You may not be able to see the details but they used metal bobbins (top) and thread spools (bottom).

Pg 52 Japanese Doily - Completed

It measures 18 inches across in Size 20 threads. My blocking board was not large enough so it isn't exactly flat. May need to run a hot iron to flatten it. 

See previous posts for details on thread colours and pattern.

This was what's left of the thread. It worked out just right.

Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments.
